Your profile picture is the first thing students will see when they search for teachers, so it's important to take a picture that represents you well.
- You don't have to have your photo taken by a professional, but try to take one of reasonable quality, not overexposed or way too dark.
- It's okay to put your pet in your photo, but please don't include other people.
- Make sure your face is clearly visible and that you are facing the camera.
- No black and white photos, only color please.
- Make sure your photo was taken recently. It's okay if it's a couple of years old, as long as it still resembles the way you look today.
- No special effects, like circular photos, removed backgrounds, special borders, or anything else that's distracting. Just a regular photo please.
- We shouldn't have to include this rule, but please wear clothing.
- It's not required, but a smile can often make you look more approachable, which can help attract students.
